Darn indeed! It took me a couple of years to accept this sad fact. I guess it's nature's way to clue us in that we are supposed to be living in the tropics. ;)
LOL. I guess you are right ;) I really wish I lived in the tropics.
Yup, I burned my lips and tongue pretty bad by slugging a pineapple smoothie a couple times. Pineapples need to be orangey, not just green and yellow..
I haven't had a prob since then and I've just cut down by putting maybe 1/2 a pineapple in my smoothie, just to be safe, but no probs..
